My 25 & under team looks like this...

Tye McGinn (23) Claude Giroux (25) Jakub Voracek (23)
Brayden Schenn (21) Sean Couturier (20) Wayne Simmonds (24)
Nick Cousins (20) Scott Laughton (19) Jason Akeson (23)
Zac Rinaldo (23) Tyrell Goulbourne (19) Marcel Noebels (21)
Petr Straka (21)

Erik Gustafsson (24) Luke Schenn (23)
Robert Hagg (18) Sam Morin (18)
Shayne Gostisbehere (20) Brandon Manning (23)
Oliver Lauridsen (24)

Steve Mason (25)
Anthony Stolarz (19)

I think that's pretty solid, but I don't see anyway for Manning to be a top 4 defenseman here down the road unless Morin busts completely.

That said, he could fit in very nicely as a long-term #6 next to Gostisbehere should he continue to progress.

I think he offers big physicality, a little offense, and a more well-rounded game than Lauridsen.
